About the Book: Women
How-life writer and unrepentant alcoholic Henry Chinaski was born to survive.
After decades of slacking off at low-paying dead-end jobs, blowing his cash on
booze and women, and scrimping by in flea-bitten apartments, Chinaski sees his
poetic star rising at last. Now, at fifty, he is reveling in his sudden
rock-star life, running three hundred hangovers a year, and maintaining a sex
life that would cripple Casanova. With all of Bukowskis trademark humor and
gritty, dark honesty, this 1978 follow-up to Post Office and Factotum is an
uncompromising account of life on the edge.
